I was in Nashville International Airport (BNA) for a conference this week and had a chance to check out the Sky Club®. This location is gorgeous, spacious and has joined the list of my favorites in Delta’s lounge network. Nashville doesn’t have a dominant carrier. Statista research shows that American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and Delta Air Lines all hold around 17% of flights (with United Airlines just slightly behind at 16%). The airport has an Admirals Club and this Sky Club®. United does not operate a United Club℠ here.

There are several kiosks and an agent to check in guests. Access is granted to passengers with memberships (purchased annually), one-time pass holders (earned from the co-branded American Express cards), Delta One®, SkyTeam premium cabin passengers, SkyTeam Elite Plus when flying internationally in premium cabins, the Centurion® and the Platinum Card® from American Express holders, Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card holders, WestJet business class passengers, and WestJet Rewards Platinum and Gold Elite. Allowed guests vary by access type. A same-day boarding pass is required to enter the Delta Sky Club®.

Anthony’s Take: This Sky Club® is beautiful. It has huge windows for natural light, lots of Nashville-specific art, a great buffet, and plenty of space. I don’t get to Nashville often, but will definitely make a point of stopping by when I do come to town.

The bar fills the right-hand side of the lounge. It offers all of the standard spirits, wine, and beer that Delta provides complimentary as well as some premium options for purchase.

Seating & Decor

There is a ton of seating in this Sky Club®. A mix of tables, high tops, and desks around the room with lots of natural light offers space for everyone. I loved all of the art in this lounge. It gives a sense of place and is fun.

Overall Impression:

Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: I love the lounges where The Platinum Card® from American Express grants me access. It has had a prominent place in my wallet for many years now. While it does have an annual fee of $695, it provides many travel benefits and will always be my go-to for lounge access (both Delta Sky Clubs® and Centurion Lounges) and booking airfare from the airlines to earn 5x points (up to $500,000 per calendar year). Learn more. Rates & Fees.
